«OPIS FILMU» „Bliźniak” to innowacyjny thriller akcji, w którym Will Smith wciela się w postać Henry’ego Brogana, elitarnego zabójcy próbującego przejść na emeryturę – Prześladuje go jednak tajemniczy młody mężczyzna, który jest w stanie przewidzieć każdy jego krok…
«PLOT» Henry Brogan, an aging government assassin, is sent on a mission to assassinate an anonymous terrorist aboard a bullet train. During the mission, Henry’s spotter warns him of a young girl approaching the target, causing Henry to delay his shot until the last second, shooting the man in the neck despite aiming for his head. Disillusioned with killing, Henry retires from his career.
While settling down with his retirement, Henry meets boat rental manager Dani and reconnects with an old friend, who reveals that an informant named Yuri told him that the man Henry killed was innocent; demanding proof, Henry has his friend arrange a meeting with Yuri. In retaliation for Henry knowing their deception, his former agency plans to kill him while Clay Varris, head of a top-secret black ops unit codenamed „GEMINI”, wants to go after Henry but is denied the request.
Realizing Dani is a fellow agent, Henry befriends her. After his home is broken into by government agents, Henry calls his spotter, who is killed along with Henry’s friend. Henry warns Dani about the attack and they manage to kill the assassins sent after them, learning the agency wants them dead.
Escaping east, Henry and Dani go abroad to the home of Henry’s former colleague Baron, and plan to meet with Yuri for further options. Meanwhile, Clay dispatches his top assassin to kill Henry. Fighting him off, Henry realizes the assassin bears an uncanny resemblance to himself as a young man, with a similar skill set. After a motorbike chase, Henry is outmatched and almost killed by the faster and more ferocious operative, until authorities arrive on the scene and the younger assassin flees. When the assassin arrives at a safehouse, he is revealed to be Clay’s adopted „son” Junior. Curious about his similarities to Henry, Junior is ordered to finish the job.
Henry is also troubled by his similarities to the assassin, whom Dani suggests might be his child, though Henry claims he isn’t married. Testing DNA samples recovered from Junior, Dani discovers that his and Henry’s DNA are identical – Junior is Henry’s younger clone. Desperate for answers, Henry meets Yuri, who informs him of the cloning project and that the man Henry killed was one of the project’s scientists. Having designed a method to produce clones devoid of pain or emotion, the scientist tried to leave the project and was killed upon being discovered.
To try and get Junior to turn away from Clay’s intentions, Henry calls the head of his former agency, who agrees to send Junior to bring Dani safely back to the United States. Collecting Dani, Junior sets up a trap for Henry, but Dani warns Henry via a covert listening device in her mouth. Ambushing the younger assassin, Henry explains to Junior that he is a clone, convincing him by revealing their similar secret traits no one else could know. Escaping back to GEMINI, a heartbroken Junior confronts Clay, who claims that he is better than Henry and is still Clay’s son.
Finding Henry after sneaking out of GEMINI, Junior allies with him to bring down Clay with Henry urging Junior to quit in order to become someone better. Baron is killed in a ambush ordered by Clay with Junior knocking Clay unconscious after a brief hand to hand fight.
After defeating a wave of GEMINI operatives, Henry, Dani, and Junior face another clone who feels no pain or emotions, managing to kill him. A defeated Clay tries to justify his actions towards Junior, who almost kills him, but Henry persuades Junior otherwise, and instead he kills Clay in Junior’s place, having to already live with the heavy burden.
Ensuring there are no more clones produced and that they are finally free from harms way, Henry later meets with Junior, who has enrolled into college under a new identity. Junior has taken the name „Jackson Brogan” after Henry’s surname, with him, Henry, and Dani planning Jackson’s future.
